breaking overnight. a u.p.s. facility in southern california is evacuated after a driver noticed a package sent to the suspect in the california shooting rampage. the package, addressed to the home of syed farook. the bomb squad was called in and determined the package was safe and sent from a, quote, "reputable vendor." right now the f.b.i. is investigating that deadly shooting as an act of terrorism. a news service affiliated with isis is calling the killers, quote, "supporters" of their cause. the f.b.i. admitting the couple flew under the radar. frank: the eyeopener's mary saladna is following the developments. mary: we're seeing for the first time the face of tashfeen malik, the young mother who became a killer. ever since the surprising discovery of the body of a female shooter in the bullet-riddled get-away car, authorities have been unraveling the mystery of how and why a 29-year-old mother of a baby daughter turned into a cold-blooded terrorist. a woman, who within moments of
5:03 am
husband's holiday office party, went on facebook to pledge her allegiance to the leader of isis. her husband's family says they are stunned. >> it's harder for us to understand especially knowing that he was our brother and he was so happy with her. how could he leave his only child and how could the mother do this? mary: malik was born in pakistan but moved to saudi arabia with her parents when she was four. she returned to pakistan to attend college. her marriage to syed farook last year came after she met him on a matrimonial website. malik gave an address in this pakistani town when she applied for her american finance visa in 2014-- an address, abc news has discovered, does not exist. and now officials are questioning whether she was the one who radicalized her husband. yet the f.b.i. confirming the couple was not on any terrorist watch list. expert lanny marcus says it's a case of home-grown terrorists flying beneath the radar made harder to catch because the plotters were husband and wife. lanny marcus: if they're able to talk with one another in the
5:04 am
suspicious, they're not detected before they do an attack. mary: syed farook's family says they never saw this attack coming. they describe malik as a quiet, devout muslim housewife. farook's brothers say they never even saw her face because she always wore a burqua. couple's apartment, where they lived with their six-month-old daughter. the owner prying open doors to let reporters in after the f.b.i. tore through the place. several crews were allowed inside but abc's matt gutman, one of the first inside. reporter: holes have been punched through the doors. we can see a door that's been ripped in half next to this bathroom. a tremendous mess here. frank: the only evidence of a double life inventory lists of items removed. an s.d. card and dozens of boxes of ammunition. investigators also removing 12 pipe bombs. a u.p.s. driver in the neighborhood says in the past
5:05 am
to the home. antoinette: "the new york times," in a historic move, uses its front page to call for greater gun regulation in the wake of recent mass shootings. today's piece is the first page-1 editorial for "the times" since 1920. the publisher says he wants to deliver a strong and visible statement about gun control. the editorial suggests drastically reducing the number of firearms and eliminating some categories of weapons. frank: new trouble for aaron hernandez. "5 investigates" learning that he's now in a segregated prison unit after guards say they found a shank inside his prison cell in shirley. that's a knife, for those of you who don't know. the former patriots' tight end is serving a life sentence for murdering odin lloyd in 2013. he also faces trial for a double murder in boston in 2012. it's unclear how long he will be in segregation. right now the man accused of planting a hoax device in boston is behind bars. investigators using a

down. and he's well-known to police. our john atwater has the story from boston. john: were you trying to scare people? no explanation from james derepentigny as police lead him away. this surveillance camera image prompted a tip that led police to derepentigny walking the streets of lawrence. officer harold rogers: he walked across the street right in front of me. the suspect fitting the description to a t. i took him in custody at gunpoint. john: earlier in the day 30 miles south in boston, the bag police say he dropped next to a homeland security s.u.v. shut down part of the city. (loud noise) police safely detonated the bag, and video allegedly showed him placing it and walking away causing concern on atlantic avenue and worry for the officer who ultimately took him down. officer: when i heard "bomb," i didn't know if he would have any additional weapons him or possibly an i.e.d. on himself. john: turns out he wasn't armed, and that bag didn't have a bomb. but the police commissioner said
5:07 am
department's response. >> commissioner: given what's going on, unfortunately around the country, better safe than sorry. john: that man was brought from lawrence to boston. he is being charged with planting a hoax device. in boston, john atwater, wcvb, newscenter 5. antoinette: the man shot and killed outside a boston bar on thanksgiving morning will be laid to rest today. funeral services will be held for jepthe chery. the 29-year-old mbta conductor was struck and killed during a shootout between two other people outside the bar "who's on first." one of those suspects has been arrested but has not been charged in chery's death. police have not yet named the second suspect. right now northeastern university is asking for help to find a missing student. the family of 21-year-old dennis njorage, of worcester, last heard from him on november 29. the school says the student's i.d. last registered in the

5:12 am
frank: 5:12. welcome back. boston's police commissioner among those delivering a message of support to hundreds in the muslim community following recent terrorist attacks. antoinette: "5 investigates" karen anderson was the only t.v. reporter invited inside the service at the mosque in roxbury. commissioner: we're very much aware of the possible backlash against the islamic community. i just want to let you know that we won't tolerate that obviously, and we'll work as closely with you to make sure that that doesn't happen. karen: applause again and again for boston police commissioner william evans for more than 1,000 muslims at their friday prayer service. with the promise, a request. commissioner: we'll be there for you, but you also have to be there for us.
5:13 am
make sure this city is safe, our country is safe, and we all work together so nobody out there is getting hurt. karen: the commissioner spoke at an interfaith service organized to reassure the muslim community feeling pressure following the california shooting and paris attacks. other faiths also sending a unified message. >> we all stick together with you. you are our brothers and sisters. >> i hurt. my heart hurts and i'm disgusted viscerally when i see expressions of islam-phobia or racism. >> we have a responsibility now to be there when they're feeling alone. karen: the director of the roxbury mosque encouraging the community to stand against violence. he says that's not what islam is about. those who attack others are criminals, not part of their religion. >> the mosque is about sticking together and standing together. we know that violence has no
5:14 am
we have to work together to bring about a more peaceful, loving, and healthy community. karen: boston also stands out from other parts of the country according to the muslim leaders. for every one recent hate message, the mosque has received about 30 messages of support. karen anderson, 5 investigates. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meterologist danielle vollmar. antoinette: brrrrr. it's 33 degrees outside right now but i feel like it's a sign of good things to come because no clouds, right. danielle: it's clear. it will be sunny today. and that means that the temperatures will eventually warm up especially with the westerly wind. we're going in the 50's today. near 60 tomorrow. so, yes, it is a good sign of things to come if you like the warmer weather. definitely not feeling like december out there, folks. our average high temperature this time of year should be around 45 degrees. today we're warming up into the
5:15 am
tomorrow upper 50's, maybe 60 in spots. lower 50's on monday. and then we finally drop back to where we should be on tuesday as another system comes up the pipeline. as far as december goes though, we're still running well above normal. you see a lot of red on the map. i expect a couple more days of that before we turn colder. so here are the headlines for today. saturday. out there. but we are going to be warming up as we head over the weekend. we are watching an ocean storm potentially for tuesday. could have implications especially it looks like the south coast, the cape and the islands right now but as that tracks a little closer, more of us could get involved. we'll talk about that in just a cond. first let's talk about what's happening this morning. if you're stepping outside the door grab a winter coat because it's in the 20's in keene, in orange, in springfield. 40 though in boston. so actually milder right there in the city. upper 30's on the cape. low 40's on nantucket.
5:16 am
40's, low 50's for highs. lots of sunshine. you can definitely get outside and do whatever you need to do. it's a nice day on tap. as you look at satellite and radar, really not much is going on. that's going to be the case at least for the next couple of days. you can thank high pressure for keeping us dry. now we are watching a system, a frontal boundary and a cold front out to the north and west. eventually this area of low pressure could develop the other one that gives us the chance for rain on tuesday. before today, for tomorrow, it is mild. it is dry. on the backside of high pressure, those winds are going to turn out of the south and west tomorrow. so that's why even though today is mild, tomorrow is actually milder. so for tonight, temperatures still going to drop intak into the 20's and 30's. it's going to be a chilly one because of clear skies. it doesn't trap that heat in. the heat escapes into the upper atmosphere. for tomorrow with a lot of
5:17 am
mid 50's and maybe a few upper 50's near even 60 degrees. then that chance for rain goes up on tuesday. it's all due to that system i was talking about. let's talk about the next seven days. since we're warm or mild not only saturday or sunday answer into monday but i do want to talk about tuesday because tuesday i have showers to the south. it's all due to this area of low pressure that is developing off the mid atlantic coast. what happens is it could graze our coastline, at least that's what the latest models are saying. we're going to have to watch this track very carefully. as it gets closer, more of us will get involved. anyway we look at it right now it looks like the south coast, the cape only getting about a tenth to two tenths of an inch of rain but again it gets closer e. we could expect more rain from that. remember, we'll welcome any rain we can because we're down over nine inches for the year. behind that system we drop back into the 40's and eventually warm back up into the 50's by the end of the week. frank and antoinette. antoinette: all i see is 60. thank you, danielle.
5:18 am
a check of the stories we're following right now. frank: a close call for a plane carrying 53 people struck a herd of wild boar after landing on a runway in india. seven boars were killed. nobody on board was seriously hurt. you can see passengers evacuating the tipped jet. damage to the plane is being assessed. antoinette: the melrose-native, killed in an attack at a planned parenthood in colorado, is laid to rest. hundreds packed a colorado springs church yesterday to say goodbye to officer garrett swasey. he was gunned down responding to a call last friday. the governor praised the campus police officer for sacrificing his life for others in the shooting and told swasey's two children that colorado is a much better place because of their father. frank: a humpback whale that had been trapped in cape cod bay is now free. crews from the center for coastal studies in provincetown disentangled the endangered whale yesterday. the whale then swam out of the bay.
5:19 am
okay. antoinette: this is something you can't make up. a man named bud weisser was arrested at the budweiser brewery. the 19-year-old was cited for trespassing and resisting arrest. police were called to the st. louis brewery after security officers told weisser to leave a restricted area and he refused. it's unclear how weisser got inside in the first place. frank: a heck of a show between the bruins and the flames. but the flames come out on top. the clubs traded goals throughout the first and second period. 3-3 in the third when brad marchand gets slashed by former bruin dougie hamilton. marchand scores on a penalty but the flames tie it up before the end, and we go to o.t. the flames find the back of the net. 5-4 the final. the b's' are in vancouver to take on the canucks tonight. antoinette: meet the newest
5:20 am
the team introduced david price yesterday at fenway park. looks good with that hat on. million contract with the team earlier this week. the 30-year-old left-hander said he is looking forward to all his new city has to offer. price will wear number 24. we're hoping it is lucky for that left arm. antoinette: a high school choir is delivering some holiday cheer. the unique way the group is performing this season-- why their show may be tough to top. facebook's lead. the new policy for new parents that may be catching on. antoinette: it is dark and early over the city of boston this 5:20.
5:21 am
come on in pop pop. happy birthday. t i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack.
5:22 am
...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. p and every day for as long as my doctor tells me.
5:23 am
danielle: welcome back. i'm meteorologist danielle vollmar. this morning we're waking up to different temperatures depending on where you live. boston right now checking in at 40 degrees with clear skies. 30 in worcester. but look at nashua checking in this morning at 27 degrees. if you're headed out first thing, grab a coat. but by afternoon, we're going to warm up into the low 50's. it's sunny. it's warm. and sunday it's milder with temperatures in the upper 50's in most locations. now the pats are taking on the philadelphia eagles at 4:25 on sunday.
5:24 am
50 degrees. remember that sunset before kick-off. as we head through the night, the temperatures will fall. go pats. the next seven days look like this. temperatures moderate over the weekend. we're still in the 50's on monday. remember we should be around 47 degrees this time of year. we'll pull back into the 40's tuesday and wednesday with a chance for some showers on tuesday, thursday and even into friday. antoinette and fraj. antoinette: looks good. a high school choir in minnesota is putting on quite the show this holiday season. frank: it's called "america's tallest singing christmas tree"and here's why-- the choir puts on the show while standing in a tree that measures 67 feet tall. obviously the people on top don't get vertigo or anything like that. that's pretty high up. that's a couple stories high. antoinette: are the best singers
5:25 am
frank: i think sopranos up top, altos in the middle. basses at the bottom. antoinette: look at you knowing your music. boston mayor marty walsh says he won't back down in his fight against a casino in revere. frank: his response to a legal loss for the city. a high school freshman is accused of posting violent threats on facebook. how the unsettling case played out. antoinette: and a live look outside this morning. it is 33 degrees. still dark out there. the sunrise not at least another hour. it's 5:25. >> this is an editorial by wcvb-tv channel 5 president and general manager bill fine. bill fine: "just another day in america." that is how the bbc opened their coverage of the san bernadino mass shooting. that may sound callously flippant, but it's also true. as the global leader in a disturbing category, the number of mass shootings in america exceeds calendar days this year. the world was galvanized in
5:26 am
paris. yet, more than twice that number are shot every 48 hours in america. the simple phrase, "enough is enough," seems as well-worn as the expressions of sympathy and prayers for the many victims. if virtually any other product was killing 30,000 americans a year, there would be a call to action, congressional hearings, and legislation designed to reduce that staggering total. there is no other civilized nation with the same epidemic. to be clear-- we are not advocates for confiscating guns, which is a red herring used to stymie common-sense reforms. the truth is, this is no longer just a political, cultural, or second amendment issue. this is a major public safety problem. congress can enact simple safeguards, designed to take no one's freedoms away, but will almost certainly save innocent lives. enacting mandatory background checks, a 48-hour waiting period, and closing the gun show loophole are just a few of the many measures which, at long last, need a sense of urgency to pass.
5:27 am
justify the current loophole allowing those residing on our own terror watch list to legally purchase a gun. buying sudafed is more difficult than acquiring an assault rifle at a gun show. these few recommendations, among many that should be considered, are not safeguards pushed by gun haters. universal background checks are supported by nearly 90% of americans, and 75% of the n.r.a..'s own membership. will these safeguards stop all mass killings? no. but if they save one life-- and it was your loved one-- it's

>> now on newscenter 5's "eyeopener." danielle: a frosty start to your saturday. when the temperatures will feel more like october than december. antoinette: convicted football star aaron hernandez moved to a segregated prison unit. what guards claim they found in his cell. frank: a high school freshman accused of making threats against his school. the disturbing allegations and how investigators tracked him down. >> you're watching wcvb, boston's news leader. good morning! this is newscenter 5's "eyeopener." frank: it's 5:30 on this saturday morning. hope your day is getting off to a great start. i'm frank holland. antoinette: and i'm antoinette antonio along with danielle vollmar. it is chilly out there right now, but we are looking at a warm-up. did i hear maybe 60 tomorrow? danielle: you may have heard correctly there.

5:32 am
its way across the maps. as it does, it could give us some much-needed rain. the other thing i want to point out is it's 39 in minneapolis. 40 in sioux city. that warmer air is headed in our drerks. we'll talk about how warm we'll get as well as when we'll get much-needed rain. antoinette: thank you, danielle. breaking overnight. a package that forced an evacuation as a u.p.s. facility in southern california has been deemed safe. the package was addressed to the home of the suspects in the california shooting rampage. the bomb squad determined the package was okay. frank: right now convicted murderer aaron hernandez is being held in segregation.
